With nearly 20,000 miles on our leased van in 5 months,
Visiting Friends, Sharing About our lives and work in South Asia, and Going to Meetings,
We knew we had to slow down.
And now we only have a couple weeks left in the USA.
So we travelled down to South Texas to finally encounter some cold weather,
Climbed a few trees,
Ate some Louisiana specialties (beignets with their accompanying powdered sugar),
Enjoyed the sites around our city,
And visited old family (our dog Kosi, with her new family).
We have--as all wise parents would--tried to get our 20-month-old son addicted to television.
Because as anxious as you are to climb in the suitcase and get back to South Asia, Reed,
We have a 14+ hour plane flight (with no stops) ahead of us.
